Not sure where to start? Begin your Crystal Healing journey with these Must-have crystals for beginners. Discover seven essential crystals NOBODY should be without…
So Many Crystals, Where Do I Start?
The Crystal Kingdom is vast and with many newly discovered and rare crystals catching our eyes in the shops, or on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. If you’re new to crystal healing it can be overwhelming.
Perhaps you’re not sure where to even start? Maybe you have been distracted by some of the more exotic crystals and your crystal collection is lacking some of these core crystals? This article should help you.
Why These Crystals For Beginners?
I recommend these crystals for beginners, firstly because they are must-have crystals. I do not think your crystal collection would be complete without these stones. Their properties and uses are so valuable, yet they will not cost you the Earth! They are all affordable, easy to find and have distinctly different energies.
“These are crystals you will be working with for a lifetime and keep going back to over and over again!”
Tumble Stones or Crystal Points?
Please note that all you need, if you are just starting is a tumble stone (aka Tumbled Stone) which are easily available everywhere. These polished crystals are easy to carry on you and place on your body or Chakras. To learn more about Chakra Balancing with crystals check out my beginners guide Crystal Healing For The Chakras.
Some of the crystals on my list such as Quartz and Amethyst are also available as raw, polished or cut crystal points. These will cost a bit more. They are worth it later on as you progress and start to learn and sense how the form of a crystal affects its energy.
Crystal Healing Properties and You
Although I include my take on some of the main properties of these crystals for beginners below to start, never ignore how you feel. Try the stones out and see how they work for you. Meditate with them. You will over time build your relationship with each crystal.
Clear Quartz: The Master Healer
An essential crystal healing tool and a good choice for your first crystal. Do not be fooled into thinking this crystal is boring. Clear Quartz crystals are probably the most versatile crystals and can be programmed for any purpose. They can direct energies and enhance the energy of other crystals. Quartz is cleansing, helps bring clarity while also keeping your energy and aura bright and strong.
Amethyst: The Psychic Powerhouse
It may be suitable for beginners but it can still blow your socks off (it has intense energy). Super spiritual Amethyst connects you with your spiritual power. Deeply cleansing, this violet form of Quartz purifies and transmutes negative energy. You can also use Amethyst for protection and developing your natural psychic abilities.
Tiger’s Eye: The Confidence Builder
This banded golden-brown stone carries a more masculine energy. Tiger’s Eye is the ideal crystal for helping you build your self-confidence and self-belief. You can also use Tiger’s Eye for protection too. This golden stone connects us with the Earth, making it a good choice for grounding yourself.
Rose Quartz: The Earth Mother
Possibly the ultimate comfort crystal. Rose Quartz is the Mother of all crystals. Gentle and soothing, it helps heal emotional pain. Opening the Heart Chakra it allows you to feel compassion for others and yourself. This is a crystal for attracting loving relationships but also the self-love stone.
Hematite: The Knight
This dark grey metallic crystal shields you from psychic attacks and negative energy. Hematite strengthens your aura while defecting harmful energies, pulling them into the Earth for healing and transmutation. Hematite is the knight of the crystal kingdom.
Smoky Quartz: The Negativity Buster
This form of Quartz crystal can be brown to smoky black in colour. Smoky Quartz absorbs negative energies from around you or those created by our own negative thought patterns. This is also another good crystal for grounding and protection. It anchors the Root Chakra and works with the Earth Star Chakra.
Citrine: The Prosperity Magnet
This golden crystal is renowned for its ability to draw prosperity and abundance into your life. Citrine is also good for self-confidence as it opens up the Solar Plexus Chakra. This crystal can also be used to detoxify negative energies from the aura and encourage a more positive state of mind.
